Hair Appt & Errands

This morning I had a 9am hair appt at Michael’s Hair Loft with Misty. This will be my second time getting my hair done by her. She and I bonded so quickly and we laugh so hard when I am in her chair. I decided to do all over highlights and get my eyebrows tinted like last time. I also decided to go tanning. Drew and I thought about going to the pool after my hair appt. I would just lay out in the shallow end. I didn’t want to get my hair wet after just getting my hair done. We decided not to, because it was supposed to rain, but it looked like a good pool day.

When I cashed out at the hair salon it was $196. Ladies, do you pay a lot for highlights? If so, what is the most you have ever paid for hair? I used to  go to a small neighborhood salon, and never paid over $60 bucks for Highlights. I am not complaining, because I work, and I am at the age now where I can pay a little more for my hair if I want to, but my husband was not too happy when I told him the total.

When I got home from the hair salon, I cleaned the house and put things away, ran the vacuum, and just cleaned until Drew got home. When he was on the way home from the gym, he called me and said that he tried to call me, but the call wouldn’t go through. He asked what all I got done at the salon and I told him. I get it he is the budget guy in our marriage. He knows how to manage our money, and he has a plan. He did ask me if I could get my eyebrows done every other time, instead of every 6 weeks. I told him I could do that. I just like how when they are tinted, I don’t even need to fill them in if I don’t want to. I am vain. I know.

When he got home, he complimented my hair and really did like it. He also thanked me for cleaning the house. He asked me if I wanted to get things ready for my interview, so when I get called in to interview for the GSA position, my business suit will be good to go. I tried on my suit. The good news is that the pants need taken in a bit at the waist. I guess I lost some weight since the last time I wore this suit. It will be almost three years since I have interviewed for a position. I am nervous, but I am going to spend the time prepping for the interview, and ask my adviser if we could do a mock interview, or if she has any tips for me. I am hoping I get called in this week, or next. I face-timed my mother-in-law and showed her how i look in the suit and she said that it needs taken in at the waist and suggested we call some places that do alterations.

When we hung up the phone with his mom, I called Diane’s Cleaners in Moon, they no longer do fittings, just alterations. So I would already need to know where it would need taken in at, and have it marked myself. Their seamstress just stops by and picks up the alterations. I then called Macy’s and she said they use an outside vendor and gave me the name of a place called Alterations Express. I called them and they said they do fittings and alterations, as well as same day alterations (up charge). I said relayed the information to Drew. He said, if we don’t do the same day, how long would it take? They said, 4 business days. Drew said lets take it in today, if they can do it today and pay the up charge. He wanted to make sure I was prepared.  I thought it was sweet.

Once we arrived at Alterations Express in Bridgeville, they told me to go into an empty fitting room and put on what I need altered. Then open the door, so they know I am ready. I went into the fitting room, and put on the dress pants and shirt. I tucked it in, so they could get an accurate idea. A girl came in and marked me where I would need taken in, and then told me I could get my normal clothes back on and then I will be good to go. When she left, I changed back into my normal clothes, and walked out of the fitting room. Drew was sitting there waiting for me. I laid my clothes on the counter and we checked out. They said, for us to stop back in 45 mins-1 hour.

So we went to the Bottleshop Cafe to day drink and kill some time. When we walked in, this place is clearly a guy’s place. They had the Liverpool soccer game on, some guys were sitting at the bar wearing Liverpool shirts. There are TVs in every corner. I ordered a White Claw (Alcohol Seltzer water). I have never had it before. I have always had Truly. White Claw is a little better than Truly. The flavors are better and they are no so over powering.

After about an hour at the bar, we went back to check on my dress pants. They were ready to go! We hung them up in the back of the car and we went home. When we got home, I hung my suit pants up in the closet. I am so hopeful this will work out.
